COVID-19: Archbishop Welby wants affordable homes builton church land

Sky, 21 Feb 2021
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby says the pandemic has "stripped the paper off the cracks" of the issue of affordable housing in the UK.

The Archbishop told Sky's Sophy Ridge that affordable housing should be built on thousands of hectares of land owned by the Church of England.

It comes as thousands of hectares of land owned by the Church of England are aimed to solve the issues and he is calling for the government to do more to provide land as well.
